St. Vincent’s new album may not have a name yet, but Annie Clark has publicly acknowledged that she expects it to come out in the spring. In a cover story with Guitar World, Clark spoke about her upcoming album, which she describes as her “deepest, boldest work”:
“I’ve been able to step back and reflect and not just be in the tour, record, tour, record cycle that I’ve been in for about 10 years. I think it’ll be the deepest, boldest work I’ve ever done. I feel the playing field is really open for creative people to do whatever you want, and that risk will be rewarded—especially now that we have such high stakes from a political and geo-political standpoint. The personal is political and therefore the political can’t help but influence the art. And only music that has something pretty real to say is gonna cut the mustard.”
Annie Clark’s last album, St. Vincent, was one of the best of 2014.
